American Society Gala Event

FOR THE BEST MOMENTS IN LIFE

The American Society of São Paulo is thrilled to present our Annual Charity Gala in a new and exciting format. This year our big night of giving will take place at a multitude of intimate parties in people's homes across Brazil and the USA. These Bossa Nova Pocket Galas will transport guests back in time to Rio de Janeiro in the late 1950s -- a time when the new beats of Bossa Nova music were beginning to ripple across Ipanema Beach and rise to the top of the radio charts across the world.

 

When you host a Bossa Nova Pocket Gala in São Paulo, you’ll receive all the items on the menu plus everything you need to set the mood for this unique night of giving. We will send you the catered dinners, your choice of delicious wines, 1950’s Brazilian-inspired thematic décor, AND access to our amazing Bossa Nova Livestream event.

Host a Bossa Nova Pocket Gala and enjoy a chance to reconnect with your friends. Mark your calendar for Sept. 18, think up your list of invitees, plan your themed outfit and let the sound of Bossa Nova fill your home.

Lar Tia Edna

Founded in the 50's by Edna Deakins, an American missionary, Lar Tia Edna provides a warm, loving home to approximately 15 children, most of whom will remain there until they reach adulthood or are legally adopted. Subsidized entirely by charitable donations, LTE is run by Henry (one of Edna's first adoptees) and his wife Nilma, who live on the premises and zealously care for their family. Their primary focus has always been the childrens' education; Henry and Nilma work with inexhaustible enthusiasm, pursuing every opportunity for their advancement.

The children who demonstrate interest are offered music lessons and a few have scholarships at Cultura Inglesa, where they study English.

ABBA.png
ABBA

Mission Abba is a Christian community that rescues youth at risk. Its goal is to reunite street children with their own families, and remedy the situation that led to a breakdown.

Founded in Interlagos in 1993 by an association of churches, ABBA is now led by Thomas and Susanna Smoak and a team of missionaries and volunteers. ABBA runs multiple programs including, 2 community centers, a shelter for children, as well as other social outreach programs aimed to strengthen families and keep children off the streets. It is funded by churches and individual donors, with occasional donations from corporations.

Grupo Primavera

This is a community center that provides crucial educational assistance, career training, and social guidance to 480 at-risk youths in Campinas. 

Established in 1981 by Jade Sieh, Chinese-American Sociologist, the NGO was originally designed to help women in Campinas escape prostitution. Sieh quickly learned that most of the prostitutes were from Jardim São Marcos, and after acquainting herself with the community, shifted her focus to prevention. Grupo began offering continuing education and vocational programs to the school age girls in the community.
